Birthday Trip to West Palm Beach

Good morning everyone!!

Sorry I haven't been around much as of late..

But, I have a good excuse!

It was my birthday yesterday, and Mr. Ruffles and I
took a trip to West Palm Beach again this past weekend.

We had a wonderful time, and he was such a trooper
antiquing and thrift store shopping with me, yippee!!

Without further ado.. here are my pictures I wanted
to share with you all:

View from our hotel room.

Beautiful sunrises in the morning... ahhh...

We were driving around looking for
antique malls and thrift stores,
and out of the corner of my eye
I saw THIS:

I just HAD to park the car to
see what it was all about..
and, oh my gosh.. lemee tell ya..

My heart skip a few beats!!

The next pictures are what was
inside the house...


Upstairs was a kitchen

with a turquoise fridge!!

Lots of painted furniture..

Shabby Chic'd chairs..

All Rachel Ashwell (Shabby Chic)
duvet covers, sheets, baby blankets, etc..

The price for a King Duvet?

$350! Yikes!!

Looking down the stairs

Sooo cute!!

I told Mr. Ruffles I wasn't leaving
and I was moving in.. LOL

We eventually did leave..
(Insert sad face here.. hehe)

But, we ended up at Hillsboro Antique Mall:

I was only able to take a picture
of the entrance, since they didn't
allow camaras inside.. Sorry!

I was, and still am, on the hunt
for an antique dresser for our bedroom..

Sadly, no luck the entire trip.. sigh..


That evening we enjoyed an
awesome dinner at a local Irish Pub.
Yummy Scotch Eggs, steak & tatos
and, of course a few beers..

This is my cute bartender! LOL

Here are some pictures of a
few of my finds on our trip:

Isn't this the most darling piggy bank?!


A HUGE cake stand.. this baby is heavy!

Hand painted rosey plate:

2 Tea Cups and saucers:

An extremely HEAVY antique mirror..
I can't wait to get my hands on a
paintbrush for this one!!

Another mirror and a couple of planters..

White locker baskets..

And, yesterday, for my birthday,
Mr. Ruffles even made me cake!!

He said the cake spells out:

"Happy Birthday, Tynk"

Um.. yeah.. I don't see it either! LMAO!!!
